Which Star Trek Iconic Lent His Voice To A Decepticon In The 1986 Transformers Movie?

Leonard Nimoy
George Takei
DeForest Kelley
William Shatner
Billboard Magazine, Now A Music Publication, Was Once The Magazine Of Record For Whom?

Answer: Leonard Nimoy

If you’re a sharp-eared fan of the Transformers franchise, there’s a good chance that today’s trivia was a walk in the park for you because Leonard Nimoy has lent his voice to not one but two characters in the history of the Transformers films.

In the 1986 animated film The Transformers: The Movie, Leonard Nimoy voices the character of Galvatron, the metamorphosis of Megatron brought about by the intervention of Unicron–the chaotic dark god of the Transformers universe. Nimoy again lent his voice acting talent to the franchise for the 2011 film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, where he voiced Sentinel Prime.

Nimoy certainly isn’t the only Star Trek notable to make an appearance in Transformers films and TV shows. Nichelle Nichols had a small voice cameo in 2007’s Transformers and George Takei voiced Yoketron in the Transformers cartoon.
